Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。

I like it how when you make your own noodles they seal it in the balloon

I've been to this place and I have to recommend it to everyone heading for Yokohama! For instant noodles lovers, the museum presents the life journey of instant noodles in an attractive way, which is a lot of fun. It also provides insights into how an innovation comes into being, while encouraging visitors to think reflexively about mundane things in our lives and engaging them in creative activities. It is a place where everyone, regardless of age, can enjoy. Entrepreneurs can particularly draw lots of inspirations from it which benefits the innovations of their own products.
